Which PPS Level is Right For You?

What Members are Saying about PPS

The attorney with whom I spoke, Mr. Carver, was very helpful. He struck the right balance between an honest assessment of my situation and an encouraging demeanor. It was my first contact with AOPA Legal Services, and it was a positive one.

In 3 minutes I was speaking with an attorney who was very capable and engaged. He offered excellent advice. My case of a possible runway incursion was quickly resolved as a nonevent. The service is beyond excellent - it’s perfect! Thanks!!

Thanks for the great advice and access to such knowledgeable counsel. Like the panel attorney who assisted with this matter so much that we've retained him for additional work. While I suspect that few pilots ever want to have to retain counsel, it's great to have legal services available if you need such responsive and high quality advice! As others have said, AOPA Pilot Protection Services really is one of the best bargains in aviation!

As a pilot who flies professionally in a crew environment I highly recommend their services. Especially if you are in a non union operation as there is no one to advocate on your behalf if something goes awry. You hope to never require these services, but you need to be able to call and get the right help and referral should you need it. They are an excellent source and responsive. They are well worth the money.
